Beet It

That’s what I say to Monday!


I needed a nutrient charge this evening after a long Monday at work.  It’s good there were some beets in the fridge!  You can just tell by their vibrant color that they are nutrient packed.  They are a good source of Vitamin C, Iron, and Magnesium.  They are a very good source of fiber, folate, potassium, and manganese!  Plus, they’re full of antioxidants.  Good for fighting cancer, strong bones, keeping your heart healthy, and preventing birth defects.

These beets were previously rubbed with olive oil and alderwood smoked salt and wrapped in a tin foil pouch.  Then they were roasted at 400 degrees for  about an hour.  After they cooled their skins could be peeled right off.  I chopped them and stored them in a tightly sealed jar in the fridge.  They were ready to be added to salads, smoothies, side dishes, or whatever you can dream up.


Tonight they served as a nutrient rich side dish.
